This App Keeps Track of Your Perishable Foodstuffs

By: Lawrence Bonk

One of the worst feelings in the world has to be taking a big, late night swig of milk, only to find out that it is chunkier than cottage cheese and smellier than brie. In other words, it sure is hard to keep track of all of the perishables in our refrigerators. A just-released app seeks to take on this modern problem, using the magic of technology to save us from ourselves.

It's appropriately called The Fridge and it seems simple enough. You input perishables when they go into the refrigerator and the app will let you know, via messages, when it's time to let them go. It also acts as a spoilage encyclopedia of sorts, letting you know the average time it takes all of your favorite foods to turn into your favorite poisons.

The app is $1.99 and available right now. However, The Fridge is currently only available for iOS users. Sorry Droid-heads.
